PARADA NG KALINGA: 1,300 resilient volunteers march for HOPE to signify the start of Bayani Challenge 2015 at Padre Garcia, Batangas.

On to the next municipality in the province of Batangas!

Barangay captains from all 18 barangays at Padre Garcia, Batangas take on Bayani Challenge 2015!

Opening Ceremony of the 1st Bayani Challenge in the province of Batangas. Thank you for being part of history!

"Hindi lang basta clean up drive ang ginagawa sa Bayani Challenge. Ang inaayos nito ay ang relasyon ng mga pamilya. Walang limitasyon kung tayo ay sama-sama," shared Padre Garcia Mayor Abraham Gutierrez who witnessed the mending of relationships through volunteerism activities in the municipality's entire 18 barangays.

"Tumutulong ako kasi nakikita ko silang masaya," said a volunteer who traveled several hours to help fellow Filipinos at Padre Garcia, Batangas during Bayani Challenge 2015. He is one of thousands who chose to spend summer with strangers we now call family.

"Ang pagtulong ay isang desisyon," stated Nino Gutierrez, youth leader at Padre Garcia, Batangas. Along with volunteers of all ages, they joined Bayani Challenge 2015 for the first time in the province of Batangas.

BENGUET (Tublay)

Centuries ago, our ancestors from the Cordilleras ended hunger by building rice terraces. Today we confidently say Filipinos can ?#?EndPoverty? by way of Bayanihan!

1st ?#?BayaniChallenge? in the Cordillera region, best time to be Filipino! Lakas ng pagbabago!

Volunteers from Antipolo, Manila, Ilocos Sur, Benguet, Bulacan and Batangas formed the Bayanihan line to bring materials to the farthest build site. A reminder of how our ancestors built rice terraces in the Cordillera. Bayanihan lives on! Bayanihan + the beauty of nature's view -- the best of the Philippines! More fun indeed! ?#?EndPoverty? ?#?BayaniChallenge? ?#?Benguet?

Kalinga Night at Mabinay Central School, Negros Oriental

"Bawat barangay may kakayahan at may kakulangan. Pero hindi tayo nandito para mag focus lang sa kakulangan ng ating barangay. Andito tayo para tulungan ang ating barangay at wag umasa na lang"

— Jaja Reynoso, GK Worker

Applying the Dagsa workshop they learned yesterday during our school refurbishing today. Using materials found around the school and wood discarded in a pile.

Kalinga Night featured a Trashion Show brought to you by the youth of Negros Oriental. Using materials we usually throw away on a daily basis, these innovative youth spent the day designing their costumes and put together a show in just a day! Amazing!
